Will Talks Sharks GM Search, Defends Vlasic

San Jose Sharks players held their exit interviews on Saturday, and head coach Bob Boughner and interim general manager Joe Will held court today.

Will talked to us for about an hour and touched on every San Jose Sharks topic in the water, from Boughner’s future to the new GM search to a possible Marc-Edouard Vlasic buyout to a potential Brent Burns trade to Evander Kane and even what San Jose might do in terms of adding to their roster this offseason.

Bob Boughner

Will: “Much like the players, he did a really admirable job in working hard and culturally maintaining the room that we had. He was open to playing all young players. He was very involved in that and we collaborated, and that part worked well.”

Takeaway: San Jose Sharks fans have criticized Boughner for how he’s used young players this year, with some suggesting that the head coach is biased against using them. I’m not going to debate the finer points here, but it’s worth noting that the organization doesn’t appear to see it that way.

Will’s comments on MEV alone are enough to show how Teal-tinted their glasses are. if he’s trying to sell you on MEV… Read more »

I also wished that EK65 was made captain, tho some fans still hate him for some reason.. It just never ceases to amaze me the amount of shit and general ridicule that guy gets lol.. I still stand by that he is the most talented hockey player on the team and arguably the most competitive (when the games *matter*..) and the dude has backed that up his whole career and the injuries he’s played thru to try to win. I would build a team around him and only add players who can read and react off him – heavily biased… Read more »
